Puerperal pyrexia and sepsis was found in 8.6% cases and 60.8% cases had post-operative anaemia. Intra operative haemorrhage was more than 1000 ml in 82.6% cases though only30.4% cases required blood transfusion. Hospital stay in all patients was on average 8 days post-operatively. There was no maternal or perinatal mortality.
